of the sequester. , it is something that because of the strength of the economy, it has not been as much of a public focus as the white house hoped. host: is it a matter of capitol hill not bringing it up enough? what has capitol hill been doing on this? guest: the democrats ready regularly bring up the sequester. there is no pressure on anyone to change the sequester at this point. the economy is doing fine. the budget situation is getting better. the economy is improving. the sequester is having a role as well. at this point, it seems impossible anyone would turn off the sequester before the end of september. it actually looks like the budget things that were included as part of the bill that created the sequester will continue for some time. i would expect the kind of cuts we are seeing right now will continue in the foreseeable future. we are taking your calls and comments on sequestration. the nsa to leaks, the upcoming decisions on gay marriage, and any other subject you want to talk about on capitol hill this week. ken is up next on the independent line. good morning. caller: good
constituents have made it clear time and time again that we must make us work together to grow the economy. once again, republicans refuse to listen. instead, we are debating legislation that endangers women's health and disrespects the judgment of american women and their doctors on how to make judgments about women's health. this bill would deny care to women and the most desperate of circumstances. it is yet another republican attempt to endanger women. it is disrespectful to women, unsafe or families, and unconstitutional. at the start of the congress, the republicans take great pride in reading the constitution, but then they proceed to ignore it. one example is this clearly unconstitutional bill. they claim to reduce the role of government, except when it comes to women's most personal decisions about their reproductive health. leading medical experts believe this legislation is dangerous and wrong. that is the message we have seen from doctors and health- care providers who point out that this would put medical professionals in the untenable position when treating women in need -- w
while ago about the two countries' needs to work closely together for the sake of the world economy. >> overall, germany is our largest trading partner in the eu so we have a profound stake in each other's success. we agree that there's more work to do. not only do we have to grow, but we also have to reform our economies structurally. >> the president also took time to defend u.s. surveillance programs saying they have averted at least 50 threats and saved lives in the process. mr. obama's berlin visit comes almost 50 years to the day it was june 26th, 1963, when president kennedy delivered his anticommunism speech with the well known phrase, "ich bin ein berliner." >>> house republicans want to make it a federal crime to be in the u.s. illegally. a republican-based house economic voted yesterday to pass a bill boosting criminal penalties against anyone who is not a citizen. republicans say the bill is necessary to uphold enforcement of the law. democrats say it's too dangerous and are especially disappointed as the senate plans to work on an immigration bill to provide citizenship
, dana, you would think maybe he would talk about the global economy because, you know, germany's still very much struggling with its economy. it's so much tied to the united states. why not talk about that? >> well, it's hard to imagine it's not going to be at a least implicit in his speech. but one of the things that people may not know about president obama is that when he was here in the capital, when he was senator obama, that issue, the nuclear issue, was something on the top of his priority list. in fact, when he was campaigning in 2008 and making the point when he got to the general election that he could work across the aisle with republicans. one of the examples he could give is working with former indiana republican on the nuclear issue. that they even traveled together on it. this is actually something, he wasn't here very long as a senator. he didn't even finish his first term, but this is something when he was here briefly he did focus on. the other quick thing i want to point out, gloria talking about the big crowd of 2008 and the much smaller crowd here now that he's pre
